Being stuck inside got your kids climbing the walls? Run out of inspiration for activities that won’t leave your house looking like an obstacle course? We asked childhood activity expert Abeer Al Tamimi, the founder and owner of Dubai’s Kids HQ, for some indoors inspiration…
01. BOARD GAMES WITH A TWIST
Pick a board game, depending on the age and concentration level of your child – I find Borders in Mall of the Emirates to offer the biggest variety – and pick a spacious spot in the house in which to play. Have the kids help with laying out the game on the floor and explain the instructions with one extra addition – every time it’s someone’s turn, they have to either run two rounds around the playing area or play their turn while holding a plank position. The point here is to keep the child engaged and add an element of fun (and the fact it adds a physical element to tire them out is an added bonus).
02. HAVE A FASHION SHOW FOR CHARITY
